OK, so then the use of GetGTKDefaultWidgetSize() in the groupbox is
wrong, since that's what is looping through all the child controls.
I've attached a patch that works for me, it's basically cribbed from
GetGTKDefaultWidgetSize(), so maybe that needs a NoChildren parameter so
that we don't duplicate the gtk2 size request code.
